Mandatory Minimum Wage

The threat to the survival of your business and the ability of small business to thrive in Pennsylvania is real. Several Bills are in the House or Senate from $15-$21 an hour. SB 743- Sen Dan Laughlin (R) This legislation will increase the minimum wage in Pennsylvania to: • $11.00 per hour effective January 1, 2024 • $13.00 per hour effective January 1, 2025 • $15.00 per hour effective January 1, 2026 Also includes a tip wage increase Pennsylvania to 40% of the minimum wage
Now, more than ever, your voice needs to be heard on the Hill in Pennsylvania to fight these irresponsible policies that will only drive up the already untenable costs facing small business employers and ultimately put those who need low skill jobs out of work.
